pradeepOur research group at the University of Houston performs multi-disciplinary research on properties, behavior and performance of materials and systems spanning the length scales from atomistic level to the gross macroscale.

Current research topics include:

  1. Nanoscale piezoelectricity and generalized electromechanical couplings
  2. Coupling of strain to quantum mechanical behavior of quantum dots
  3. Self-assembly of nanostructures
  4. Energy storage and nanocapacitors
  5. Quantum definition of stress
  6. Surface energy, stress and elasticity
